There are a lot of produce stalls, lots of handicraft stalls, and some yummy food. We strolled through here at lunch time and ended up eating at one of the stalls. The fish was amazing!

Lots of hand made items to find gifts. Amber jewellery particularly pretty but I really loved the couple selling the felted soaps. A really novel product to take back. Varying quality at the food stalls so shop carefully.

A lot of vendors here selling all sorts of fruits and produce. We bought some blueberries and found them quite amazing in flavor. Right next to the harbor, this is a must see/stop area for first time visitors.

I expected to see a more live market The stalls are meaningless and extension to what you can find anywhere Even we found the reindeer fur more expensive than airport 160€ verses 130€. I wouldn’t bother for a visit
